    Welcome to the forum. Best advice I can offer is allow more room for STOPPING.

    Welcome from SW PA.
    First and foremost, it takes a lot longer to stop with a trailer. Give yourself plenty of room.
    Also, get used to going over bumps and uneven pavement. The trailer will bump the bike around a bit but you'll get used to that quickly. Make sure you distribute the weight in the trailer. You want about 10-15% of the total weight on the tongue. I try to keep mine under 45lbs. A lot depends on what bike you are pulling it with and what trailer hitch you have.
    You'll also learn what you need to take with you and what you don't need.
